I tested the scenario you presented and the files were updated correctly
when I did svn update, after deleting then copy'ing the folder.

Can you recreate the problem? Can you check out the revision of the site
before your rm of /branch/mage and repeat your rm and cp of /branch/mage
and see if it happens when you update again?
